Young recycling champion
Rebecca Dickinson, 10, is passionate about recycling. Since a very early age she has spread the word about recycling and the environment. This year, she launched her own website to educate her local community about the importance of recycling - http://recycle.conxxion.com/ (This link will open in a new browser window) On the site there a several e-newsletters that can be downloaded offering a feast of facts and information about recycling and how we can all DOB - do our bit.
SCRIB was hugely impressed by the amount of effort and research that Rebecca has put into the newsletters, but it is not just us that have recognised the hard work she has put in. BBC Radio Leeds invited her to make an appearance with DJ Tim Crowther earlier this year to discuss recycling and other environmental issues. Rebecca has also received several awards and prizes for her work promoting the environment.

Keep up the good work Rebecca!
